Less than 12 months ago I was traveling around Europe learning things that I never knew would change my life forever. My backpacking adventure through Italy, France, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Switzerland, England, Scotland, and Portugal was not just mere travels, but the start of something much larger. This was the spark that ignited my love for meeting people and began my quest for understanding how culture is shared and connections are made. I met people from all around the world and learned that food, great flavors, is the means by which people share their love and culture with one another. With this began aCanela.
This year, alongside aCanela, I will travel all throughout Asia. The journey begins April 28th in New Delhi, India. It takes me across the Indian country, into Thailand and Cambodia, through mainland China on the ancient Silk Road, on the Trans Siberian Railway through Russia, and finally back to the place that I still consider home and the start of my love for adventure through spices. That place is Portugal. The end of August has a lot in store that I cannot wait to share with you. It is going to be an adventure. Join me as I taste the world.
